    Rimmer aerosol paint

    Hi Gareth, Only had the car since July, so don.t know how old the exterior paint is. The paint is just from Rimmer's (Damson) not too concerned, as it is the engine bay. I do, however, need to paint the front valance, but need an exact colour match - any advice ? Thanks. Mark.

    Hi Paul, My colour is Damson, I used 6 cans of aerosol, plus around 3 cans of grey primer. Good luck with your engine bay refurb. Regards. Mark.

    Rimmer aerosol paint

    Hi All, Getting there with the engine bay sorting. Problem is, the Rimmer paint is darker than the paint on the outside of the car, although it has come out the same as the engine bay colour before I started. Is this just fading of the paint on the outer panels ? or have I done something wrong ? Please see attached pics. Thanks. Mark.

    Rimmer aerosol paint

    Hi Gareth, Temperature was good, the garage was warmer than inside the house. Some areas are more shinier than others, will put another coat on. Will post some pics when done. Mark.

    Rimmer aerosol paint

    Hi Colin, Nearly there with the paint, did you use a clearcoat on top of the Rimmers paint ? I got everything out of the engine bay apart from the engine block/head, so just need to be happy it is right before I put everything back and do the PI stuff. Thanks for your reply. Regards. Mark.

    Rimmer aerosol paint

    Hi All, Does anyone have experience of using aerosol spray paint from Rimmer Bros ? I am sorting out my engine bay, prior to converting back to petrol injection. Before I ordered the paint from Rimmer Bros, I phoned them to ask the spec of the paint - they just said solvent based and I would also need to apply a clearcoat . I assumed that would mean the paint would dry mat - it has dried somewhere between satin and gloss - should I use a gloss clearcoat ? Any advise would be most welcome as always. Thankyou. Mark.

    Electrical plug - alternator

    Hi All, May seem like a silly question, but is there a knack to removing the wiring plug from the alternator ? It just will not pull off, and I don't want to force it. Thanks for your help. Mark.

    Harrington Bumpers - import Tax ?

    I paid £745 including shipping from Vietnam. They only took 4 weeks to arrive. I did try TR shop and they told me at least 2 months delivery. Very pleased with Harrington's service.

    Harrington Bumpers - import Tax ?

    Issue sorted. I emailed Harrington and they asked me to pay the Fedex invoice, send them a copy of the receipt, and they would refund me. All sorted out within 30 minutes. Fantastic service from Harrington's from start to finish.

    Harrington Bumpers - import Tax ?

    Thanks, Will email Harrington on Monday, there was no mention of any import duty / taxes - if I have to pay, then so be it. Have to say the service from Harrington was fantastc though.

I have received an invoice from FedEx fot £60+ import tax/duty, is this right ? on the commercial invoice it states the bumpers are "samples" should I pay or not ? Appreciate your comments, previous experience. Mark.
